Learn to roll rolling clinics

various venues & dates

Patrick Moore from OneMoore Adventure coaches the rolling clinics. The clinics are designed for those learning to roll and those looking to develop a more reliable roll. We will be using the body/boat/blade principles and some Greenland techniques.

You will learn and practise some of the following depending on your personal needs:

  • Understanding the Body/Boat/Blade principles
  • Developing connectivity to your boat
  • Developing the balance brace
  • Balancing & rolling with an aid to develop the body memory
  • Rolling with a paddle (Greenland and/or Euro depending on preference)
  • Practise and development of a variety of rolls

Using the Body/Boat/Blade principle for rolling is a great way to develop your sea kayak roll. Even if you use a European style paddle in your normal day to day sea kayaking, the basic rolling technique is quick to master and provides a very reliable way of rolling your kayak. The skill is completely transferable to a European style paddle. More over, it will bring home the Body/Boat/Blade principles which will make you more comfortable on your kayak and will develop your confidence when edging and turning.

You need to bring your own equipment to the clinics in London and at sea, but we can source sea kayaks if you need one. We will provide Greenland paddles.
